The Egyptian Zodiac is also divided into 12 signs, yet the dates and meanings associated with each sign is a bit different from what we usually refer to today. The signs were not connected to astrological signs, but rather to different gods from Egyptian mythology.
Each deity associated with a sign was a protector of those born within its timeframe. They believed that one’s destiny and personality were based on which sign they belonged to.
Here’s what the Egyptian Zodiac Signs say about your life:
The Nile (January 1-7, June 19-28, September 1-7, November 18-26)
